Bringing together the work of 60 artists from in and around Los Angeles―many of them emerging or under-recognized―this collection of paintings, sculpture, installations, and stills from video and performance art offers a snapshot of the current trends and practices coming out of one of the world’s most active and energetic art communities. The book features 52 visual artists and 8 performance artists, each in double-page spreads, while an essay with contributions from the exhibition’s 5 curators highlights the challenges and rewards of mounting such an extensive project. This groundbreaking exhibition takes place simultaneously at multiple Los Angeles locations: the Hammer Museum, LA.
